Since 1974, Leelanau Cellars has provided affordable, quality wines for everyone to enjoy. As it celebrates its 50th Anniversary, the family-owned winery is excited to take the next step by reducing the price of wine in its tasting room and online.

“This is an exciting year for us. My parents and the Kalchik family founded this winery 50 years ago and set a goal of crafting quality wines at affordable prices; today is another step in that direction by updating these prices,” Leelanau Cellars President Bob Jacobson said. “We hope everyone gets a chance to enjoy our wines and share them with their friends and families. That’s what it’s all about.”

In the last decade, Leelanau Cellars has experienced tremendous growth, now distributing almost 300,000 cases to 34 different states every year. The winery also recently expanded its production and warehouse facilities to 100,000 sq. ft., prompting this reassessment of wine prices in the tasting room. The estate varietals will feature the greatest change, with an average price of $10.50 per bottle with new case discounts.

“I’ve been wanting to get all of our wine prices to a more affordable range for our customers, and by increasing our volume, we can now do that,” Jacobson added. “The fact that it’s our 50th Anniversary makes it a perfect time to do this.”

Nestled on the picturesque Grand Traverse Bay, Leelanau Cellars’ tasting room will feature free wine tastings three days a week, and customers can enjoy tastings for just $5.00 the rest of the week. Wine by the glass will also be just $5.00.

“We have so many different wines to enjoy, including several new ones coming out this year,” Jacobson said. “These changes will allow people to try those new wines and have a fun experience in our tasting room with the best prices in the region.”
